Echo360 - Pilot

About the Pilot

Since 2009, UC has used Apple’s Podcast Producer system for lecture capture. Podcast Producer is currently installed in over 80 classrooms across campus (there are also other lecture capture systems on campus - Mediasite, Panopto, etc.). However, Apple has discontinued Podcast Producer.

In preparation for this, a task force of faculty members, IT professionals and administrators was formed in 2012 to evaluate the market and make a recommendation on a new lecture capture system. The task force identified a system that could replace Podcast Producer and serve as the standardized lecture capture system for the entire university community. Echo360 emerged as the recommended system based on cost, features, Blackboard integration and potential impact on learning. More recently, UC's eLearning Committee validated the work of the task force and made a formal recommendation to the IT Council that we move forward with a 12 month pilot to take place during the 2014-2015 academic year.

What is Echo360?

Echo360 is a streamlined lecture capture system that allows instructors to create and upload content – before or during class – and students to access it anytime, anywhere, from any device.

Who do I contact for more information?

There are approximately 150 faculty from across campus who are participating in the pilot. If you are teaching in one of the Echo360 classrooms or have questions about the pilot, we encourage you to reach out to the contact for your college.
